B.C. 43 (see Phil. xiv), at this time a leading supporter of Caesar. He was a petitioner for Ligarius. quo me vertam, which way to turn. necessarius: Cicero's necessitudo to Pansa appears to have consisted in their working together in behalf of Ligarius. ut . . . esset (obj. of fecerit), that it is no longer a new case.
